We are facing a crisis the likes of which we have never seen before and instead of retreating behind closed doors, Franklin is connecting in ways that are unmatched. I am continually amazed by the community spirit that has been shown during this time. There are more stories of resilience, philanthropy and love than can be counted and measured. Our community is working together to emerge through this crisis better than ever and I could not be more proud of all of your efforts. Residents and businesses have adapted to working and learning; facing challenges we could not have imagined just a few weeks ago. Virtual classrooms, offices and social groups are becoming our new normal and yet our connection is stronger than ever.

The Franklin Chamber has been working behind the scenes to support the greater Franklin business community and residents in this time of crisis. We are also diligently working with other community leaders in the recovery efforts that will follow. The Franklin Chamber has created information pages directly related to three things that are foremost in your thoughts: information for your business, your health and community resources. Look for these resource pages on the home page of our website franklincoc.org. We have also started a Facebook group as a way to virtually network and support each other. If you have not done so already, please join us. As we adapt to new ways of connecting, we realize the importance of maintaining and developing relationships which are vital to our businesses and our own well-being.

The Franklin Chamber has served the greater Franklin community for 110 years and, as always, we are here for you, your employees, your business and our community. Do not hesitate to reach out if we can be of assistance. I look forward to seeing you very soon!
